After lunch we went to the make n take classes and did 8 projects. The projects were shrink wrapped with all pre-cut pieces of cardstock together with an instruction sheet with a picture of what it was supposed to look like. The other supplies we needed like ink, punches and markers were in a plastic box in the middle of the table. 8 of us sat at each table and passed the supplies around and tried to get as many projects finished as possible. Since we had the stamp sets in our convention bags we could finish them later if we didn't have time in the class. I finished a little more than half of everything, they wanted us to have so many projects to do that there just wasn't time to do them all. Here are pictures of all 8 projects. I was easily able to finish them later because of the great directions and pictures.
The first set of projects I did were all Christmas projects. It was fun to be doing Christmas cards in August. Maybe I should keep making Christmas cards so they will be finished in plenty of time to mail them, I'm such a procrastinator!
The other projects were made with the 2 non-Christmas stamp sets and the wheel we had in our convention bag. We made a gift card set that included the bag and topper to put them in. That is such a nice little gift set. You will notice that the card set and the scrapbook page use the stamp set "Things I love" I've been having fun playing with that set today. The last project was a sweet little box.
I can't even imagine what it takes to put together 8 projects for over 3000 people! It was amazing!
I love the creation process so the projects are always my favorite part of conventions. We also had some classes that were very interesting and I learned so much. What were the highlights of the convention other than the projects? Learning how to use the newest Stampin' Up product, My Digital Studio has to be in
Another highlight was the keynote speaker, Belinda Ellsworth. She has so much energy and, although she isn't a Stampin' Up demonstrator or employee, she completely investigated the company so she could talk about it and the products. She inspired me to do better in every aspect of my life. She was very entertaining and funny as she inspired. She is coming to Nashville next month and I think I'll sign up to go hear her again. She was that good!
